Quarter repeater movement triggered via the crown. The hours and quarter-hours are struck with a double strike. At the same time, the two figures move one after the other and use the hammer to strike on the bells situated under the 12 o'clock. It appears that the movement of the figures is responsible for the sound. The striking mechanism has a beautifully appealing chime.
